Happy Veterans Day!

Veteran's Day

Veterans Day is such an important holiday for families across our country, and ARDA is proud to share some of the highlights of our members supporting vets through our November “Faces of Timeshare” efforts.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO) supports military reservists across the company, and recently received the “Above and Beyond” Award for their efforts from the Missouri Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Committee (ESGR), an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. The nomination for this award came directly from a WVO employee who is in the National Guard after they held her position while she was deployed with her platoon serving our country for 12 months.

For the second consecutive year, Interval International’s Miami-based employees raised nearly $4,000 through a series of bake sales to benefit the “Operation Any Soldier” program.  And four “Treats for Troops” events, held at Interval’s corporate headquarters and member-services center, generated funds used to ship custom care packages year-round to wounded and deployed service members of the U.S. Armed Forces. 

Grand Pacific Resort Management is one of the driving forces behind non-profit organization San Clemente Military Family Outreach, which provides emergency and morale services to the 1000+ families who are stationed in the north Camp Pendleton Marine and Navy base area.  Each year this organization raises thousands of dollars for meaningful support of military families.

RCI’s Armed Forces Vacation Club® (AFVC), one of the largest military vacation clubs in the world, is holding its Great Appreciation Vacation Giveaway. Members can enter the Great Appreciation Vacation Giveaway every day from now through December 14, 2012 for their chance to win a vacation for themselves, along with one for a friend or family member that they think deserves a hard-earned break: http://www.afvclub.com/special_offers.  

International Cruise and Excursions, through its travel program for military and veterans, Government Vacation Rewards, founded the Vacations For Vets Program. This program was sponsored by the Walter Reed Medical Center’s “In Honor Of the Troops” Foundation. Over the past seven years, more than 2,000 wounded personnel and their caregivers have vacationed while on rehabilitation leave. Additionally, Government Vacation Rewards (GVR) has donated over $10,000 and 200 resort stays through joint promotions with their military partners, such as the Military Officers Association of America and the Air Force Association.
